My little bit of this big World

A sewing post

Colours for my next project
 Hubby has set me a task
He would like this design on a cushion
I have already turned the design into a pattern
The threads and canvas cost £28.00
so I have already spent more in Feb than Jan
Still loving this
I have two crossed blades to stitch under the white rose
so inside will not be all black
 I am loving the simplicity of this
March - Joyful World
a quick stitch for me
 This is for Jo, Through the keyhole
I always fold my fabric whilst stitching on a large piece,
the double fabric holds tighter in these clips
but the folds are never too bad and always iron out
I roll my work in between stitching each update. 
I have not stitched my patchwork cushion, it's still in the frame, waiting, some time soon I will finish it. I am enjoying the stitch along, this one is very different to the normal designer I follow. Later I will do some more on Sheffield.
Logan is with us for a few days, so later in the week I will post loads of photo's.
We had another great night out on Saturday, good company, lovely food and loads of music to dance to. Most of Sunday was resting, the knee's can't take it, even if the mind is willing.


  1. Wow that is a fantastic job you are doing there. I love your calendar as well

  2. Love the little chicks on March! Wow - Hubby - he must know it'll be brilliant as the Sheffield one is looking! I've done a bit of tapestry today - it's v uneven!! I need to settle to a tension lol X

  3. Beautiful stitching Marlene.


  4. What did your husband do in the Household Division?

  5. The Joyful World is really turning out so pretty. I like it stitched as one piece.

  6. I've had a lovely catch up read...
    Shame about your magnolia buds. Stitching coming along lovely.
    Nice new pot for the garden. Congrats on the new job.
    Have a lovely week off and enjoy time with the family.

  7. Looks like you had a great day doing what you love, enjoy the rest of your week x

  8. Thank you for showing me how you fold your work. Your Joyful World looks much smaller than how I'm stitching mine, it might just be that the scale looks different in the photo or have you scaled down the design? You've got lots of lovely projects on the go.

  9. Lovely stitching. I'm waiting for my delivery of stitchy goodies so I can start on the calender. Thankfully they have now been dispatched xx

  10. Your Joyful World is looking so sweet! It's been such fun to see all the different stitchers making this SAL.
